BAE Systems has unveiled a new technology the company built to help users in the intelligence community and health informatino technology industry to collaborate and distribute information.

SIBA is built to use tagging to establish allowed access and clearance levels for marked portions of documents in shared repositories and restricts data if the user is accessing it from an untrusted device or network, the company said Friday.

The company also designed SIBA to integrate with existing Microsoft Office and SharePoint installations and to not require additional infrastructure such as shared cloud and big data platforms.

“Our customers need to collapse infrastructure and take out costs, not build new large complex programs,” said DeEtte Gray, president of BAE’s intelligence and security sector.

Gray added the company also intends for users in the law enforcement community to adopt SIBA.

SIBA contains a similar architecture that BAE used for its XTS Guard tool, which the Defense Department has adopted as a cloud-based enterprise security tool for cross-network data transfers.

Peder Jungck, chief technology officer of BAE’s intelligence and security sector, said the company aims to help agencies share intelligence without compromising security.

“The government has long weighed ‘need-to-know’ against ‘need-to-protect,'” he said.

BAE unveiled SIBA Friday at Microsoft‘s Technology Center in Reston, Va.
